Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: This time the question is harder- What song LYRICALLY and MUSICALLY best describes the grateful dead experience?

Scarlet Begonias.

Trippy imagery: (the sky was yellow and the sun was blue...I had one of those flashes, I'd been there before...)
Message of love and friendship: (strangers stopping strangers just to shake their hands)
Words to live by: (Once in a while you can get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right)
Non-conformity: (I knew right away she was not like other girls)
Appreciation of music: (I knew without asking she was into the blues)
Mystery: (I had to learn the hard way to let her pass by)

and so much more.

Musically, the song rises and twists and floats and lilts and jams and spins and soars and funks and puts a smile all over yer face.

Scarlet Begonias.

Nah I think the best line is " once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right"

followed by " had to learn the hard way to let her pass by". Never been a cheater, allways been a one woman at a time/monogomous guy ( call me old fashioned but that's how I've allways been ) BUT I LOVE that line. Just something hillarious about reckognozing learning the hard way - kind of like the other line I love so much: " trouble with you is the trouble with me got two good eyes but we still don't see"
